What did we accomplish last school year 2018-19?
Our Wilson families and Wilson staff work very closely to fill every need our school has! With this, there are some WANTS that are sometimes overlooked! The PTO tries to fill in with making sure all of the needs are met but also give them some WANTS!
1) The Color Run raised over $20,000 that will support Wilson Elementary. Includes our new PTO Educator Grant program, scholarships for school supplies and field trips, support of various clubs hosted by Wilson Educators.
2) The Music Program put on a fabulous show - Mary Poppins, Jr along with all the grade level programs!
3) The Ranger Posse Dads hosted the Family Camp Out in April 2019 with games, smores and movie night!
4) The Ranger Ranch (Garden) received a make over this year! It was cleaned out, new benches added, crusted granite overlay and a new stone perimeter wall. In addition, an updated irrigation system was installed - this will be helpful in our summer months! The Ranger Ranch was very fruitful this year with many of the crops harvested and served directly in the Wilson Cafe for our learners to enjoy.
5) We want all of our learners to participate in field trips and fun activities. Our PTO gives $2000 in qualifying scholarships each year to make sure no leaner is left behind! This is a HUGE investment into our school! This allows all 5th graders (who want to attend) to have a 5th grade Camp experience for 3 days!! Also, the 4th graders travel to Austin and visit all of the wonderful Texas history sites there is to see!
5) The PTO also supports the library with 2 Book Fairs each year! Scholastic offers our school various ways to keep a percentage of money raised to benefit directly back to the library! This money is used for purchasing books, apps, website content, and it helps Ms. Parker bring in authors to speak with our learners!
6) Wilson has an Art Show held each Spring, with proceeds directly supporting the Art Program. This is also a great way to see some of the talented kids that attend Wilson Elementary!
